How we can help
Starting a project
Whether it is a small art-house film, TV series, or a feature film, we start every project the same way – by talking with you to understand exactly how we can help you get it in the can and on the screen.
Finding the perfect location
Alberta is vast and the possibilities for places to tell your story are endless. We can help you explore all the possibilities by creating a locations package that is tailored to your project.
Support for your shoot
Once you have boots on the ground, we are here to help you find everything you need to make sure you get the most out of every production day and every production dollar – from equipment and studio rentals, to crew and catering. We’ll even recommend things you can do on your day off, from great restaurants and nightlife, to unparalleled natural adventures.
I really like the area. I like the great plains and these rivers, these grasslands and these vistas… I came here primarily because Calgary and this area have always treated me really well.
